To register: How Emotional Intelligence Creates Organizational Culture
Documents don’t build culture, instead people do through their beliefs, behavior and the experience that their behavior delivers. The real culture isn’t on a mission statement, document on the wall or a file in HR. It’s how the boss believes and behaves and what the employees believe and how they behave and the experience that behavior creates for others and themselves.
Do you have core values or poster values? Is there a gap between what the mission statement says and the behavior of the staff? Do you have a culture that motivates to achieve or motivates to avoid punishment?
1. Basic understanding of Emotional Intelligence
2. How to take charge of your emotions
3. How to stop outsourcing your emotions
4. How to build an elite culture

Vickie Schmidt- Master Trainer, Schmidt & Associates
After teaching college and dealing with drunk and stoned students, Vickie attended a convention. While there, she met a vendor selling rapid drug screens. The desire to test the students caused her to learn more. (Of course the Dean said no.) Several weeks later, a student was very drunk in class. This generated a call to that vendor, and Schmidt & Associates was started. From selling test kits to the need to administer them, Vickie spent time in Baltimore becoming Certified. Now nationally recognized in the industry, Vickie is back to the teaching aspects of life. She loves helping and teaching what she has learned in the 20+ years in the drug testing industry.
